Apparently it's true. Here's the accident report from the Highway Patrol. I hope her son is ok-looks like he's at St. Louis Childrens. My grandma was a Middleton, and she's a cousin of mine by marriage. Praying for them.

It is true as Mel stated. My youngest daughter was in her Class here in Ellington a few years back. Last report we got here in Ellington was, Gretchen was released and "B" had surgery yesterday, BUT he is blind in one eye do to trauma recieved during the accident. They did also say they think he'll get his sight back in the eye after it heals. Just continue to pray for their famliy and the lady who hit them, I'm sure she's very upset also. Thank You, Have a Safe Weekend...Seems to be a little crazy out there right now...KFVS 12 has nothing but bad news on their site! So sad...

Just got an update from a close relative of theirs. Gretchen is just very sore. She wasn't admitted to the hospital. Her oldest son was flown to St. Louis Children's hospital was taken from ICU today and put in a private room. He may even be released tomorrow. He has several large lacerations to the left side of his face and may be permanently blind in his left eye. Her youngest son was unharmed. The car that hit them, hit them broad side at Blake's door.

He did not lose his eye. Really you should know facts instead of rumors before you post or at least make it clear that it is just a rumor and you aren't certain. This is how things get all jacked up in Wayne County is people talking about crap that they have no idea about!

well I hope that everyone is going to be ok. Very hard for small children to recover from even if they dont show it. Gods speed for a complete recovery to all involved.

Thank you to all who have been praying for us. We appreciate it. For those of you who don't know the facts my suggestion to you is consult the source before you run your mouth. My son is fine and is healing up nicely. People who really care would call and not stir up this crap on a website. Put yourself in my shoes and if you have a child put them in blakes. Now would be so forth coming with information? This could happen to anyone,remember that!
